New fuel injection system (EFI)
Now, more user friendly, better fuel economy and reduced emissions. The EFI system has been developed specifically for Ural by ElectroJet, Inc., a Michigan-based engineering company, using components by Bosch and Delphi. This system precisely manages fuel delivery and ignition timing while simultaneously allowing the cylinders to communicate with each other for better idling and balance.
Now 42 ft-lbs of torque at 4300rpm – a 15% increase!
What's even more impressive is that 90% of max torque is achieved below 2300 rpms – and that puts the power where you need it.

IMZ - URAL: THE SECRET HISTORY
The original M72 combat motorcycle was based on a pre-WWII BMW design obtained from the Germans. Production began in Moscow, but when the Nazis invaded in 1941, the factory was dismantled, loaded onto freight cars, and moved east of the Ural Mountains, to the Siberian town of Irbit. Here, at the Irbit Motor Works (IMZ) almost 10,000 machine-gun equipped Urals were built for Soviet recon and mobile troops during the Great Patriotic War. Production resumed at Irbit in the 1950s, and continues there to the present day.

A Letter of Thanks.
On May, 29th, 1966 I bought a motorcycle "Urals Mountains-2" (M-63). To this day, over 40 years, we use this fine, reliable transportation.
At 70 years of age on a motorcycle, I have passed through Northern caucasus, Dombai, Astrakhan and all Volgograd regions. The motorcycle is our carrier for both fishing and mushrooms, and getting to our summer residence. It has worked very regularly and is a pleasure in our life.
In 40 years I have driven this motorcycle nearly 500,000 kilometers. A bow to all workers of the motorcycle factory. I wish sound health to all and long prosperity to the factory.
With sincere respect to your collective families.
